And the Law Won

I fought the law
of gravity
and now ice thaws
on my bruised me
I tried to miss
when earth’s hard kiss
embraced my face

  1. Ooooh, Stephen–sounds painful! But I love the ha’sonnet…and now I’ve got that song playing in my head (“I fought the law, and the law won”) 🙂

    1. Thank you, Zelda! It does sound painful, so I hope it doesn’t happen to anyone. 😁 This was a combination of The Clash and Douglas Adams mixing in my timeline. I hope you like the song since I stuck it in your head. 😄

    1. Thank you, Kate! There’s no reality here, so I’m fine. 😁 My daughter and I were talking about the “Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy’s” explanation of how to fly, and I was listening to The Clash, and this occured. 😄
